Response by Jeff
The Dow Jones Index is produced up of the 30 (usually) greatest companies in diverse fields in the US. One more words there’s only one airline, 1 chemical, 1 car and so on. The single quantity you see is, quite simplistically, an addition of all their stock costs. (They mathmatically alter for stock splits, modifications when a organization drops off and new one is extra.) So if all thirty companies drop 20 points (once more very simplistically) on any given day you have a 600 pt drop in the Dow Jones. It kind of displays you what the market place as a whole is undertaking.
